Minimalism: May Wrap Up and June Goals

May Goals

Focus Area: Money

We pretty much put an end to all spending that isn't a bill or living expense.  I re-established our "allowances" for those extra expenditures.  I actually upped the amount a little bit, because I think this will help us actually stick to the allowance.  I check the bank account regularly and have been doing some "research" on ways to save money.

Habit Former:  Rethink money and necessities.

It's amazing how much my spending has changed, lately.  This is in part, from realizing how little we can afford to spend on unnecessary things, and from hating the accumulation of stuff.  The only "thing" I bought for myself in May was a mug, and I use it about every other day.  Actually...I also bought a pair of cheap flip flops om the way to school after discovering I had an unmentionable pet present on the bottom of my sneakers. 

June Goals

Focus Area 1:  Money....again

I feel like I barely scratched the surface with this money thing, so I am going to dive into it a bit further, this month.

Focus Area 2: Misc.

I will also be doing a few miscellaneous minimizing things, this month.  Hopefully, I will muster up the energy to tell you about them (goodness I'm so tired).

Habit Former:  Wake up at a consistent time, every day.

This has nothing to do with my focus areas, this month, but it is an important key to getting things accomplished.  And....it is giving me a bit extra time to work out in the mornings.  Woo hoo!

  1. I keep saying I need to work on the waking up at a consistent time, too. Then we go to bed late. :/
